Happy Birthday America Our Flag’s History

The United States Flag is the third oldest of the National Standards of the world; older than the Union Jack of Britain or the Tricolor of France.

The flag was first authorized by Congress June 14, 1777. This date is now observed as Flag Day throughout America.

The flag was first flown from Fort Stanwix, on the site of the present city of Rome, New York, on August 3, 1777. It was first under fire for three days later in the Battle of Oriskany, August 6, 1777.

It was first decreed that there should be a star and a stripe for each state, making thirteen of both; for the states at the time had just been erected from the original thirteen colonies.

The colors of the Flag may be thus explained: The red is for valor, zeal and fervency; the white for hope purity, cleanliness of life, and rectitude of conduct; the blue, the color of heaven, for reverence to God, loyalty, sincerity, justice and truth.

Judge Derr spoke to the Kiwanis Monday, May 20, 2019. He was concerned about the government taking over different aspects of our lives. A news story about the measles outbreak had caught his attention. It bothers him that the government is mandating measles vaccination because it should be up to the parent whether the child gets the vaccine.

Nurses. our community.
Autumn Leaves is a gem in

Imani Combs-Talley graduated from Dodson High School Sunday, May 19, 2019. Her last name was left out of the graduation section and the Enterprise apologizes for this inconvenience.

Jimmy Dale Zimmerman brought as his guests Matt Walton, Sandy Teal and Teddy Darrell Price from Autumn Leaves Nursing Home. This is National Nursing Home Week and Matt Walton spoke to the club.

There was a balloon release on Monday morning and an Open House on Thursday from 11AM – 1 PM and lunch was served. They invited everyone to come out and enjoy a meal and take a tour of the facility.

Nursing homes are not what they used to be. There are major changes every year. Nursing homes now send more people home than die in the facility. Many people come for rehabilitation and go home on home health or not on home health. Autumn Leaves Nursing Home is a place where people come to enjoy living.
